A raven’s eye tour of Fairbanks

Flying into Fairbanks one day in 2008 the airplane took an unusual route.  Instead of coming in from the southwest it came in from the southeast, flying over Harding Lake and Salcha and circling over Farmers Loop across north of town into the airport.  Maybe this direction of landing is normal, I don’t know, I have never experienced it before, but this day happened to be beautifully clear and I captured some great photos of the Tanana River and various Fairbanks landmarks.

Click on the first one and then scroll to the right for an overhead, raven’s eye, tour of Fairbanks.

    I loved looking at the aerial Fairbanks photos with description of what I was seeing. Thanks for sharing with us. It was such a treat to meet you at the Signpost Forest (in Watson Lake, Canada) a few years ago. Happy Valentine’s Day to you both!
